Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Putting an end to the so-called "Seinfeld curse," Julia Louis-Dreyfus stars in her own hilarious 2006 television sit-com as a divorced single mother struggling to raise a child while fighting her own insecurities. The series opens with Christine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) having recently enrolled her young son Ritchie (Trevor Gagnon) in an exclusive private school and feeling uncomfortably aware that she doesn't fit in with the other moms. Christine's ex-husband Richard (Clark Gregg) doesn't make things any easier when he shows up with his new girlfriend, also named Christine (Emily Rutherfurd), whom Christine doesn't even know exists, and things get even worse when the new girlfriend is quickly dubbed "New Christine" leaving Christine with the distasteful moniker "Old Christine." Even Ritchie senses that things are different at his new school on the first day, blurting out "where are the black kids?" in front of his horrified mother. Thus begin 13 episodes of pure comic fun in which basically good, likeable, yet invariably flawed characters seem destined to blurt out those socially unacceptable thoughts that often run through a person's head as they struggle to fit in and build meaningful relationships with each other. Whether Old Christine is trying to rid the world of prejudice, satisfy her own sexual needs, dating a man who wants more commitment than she can offer, trying to live up to the impossible standards of the meanie moms at school, maintain a friendship with her ex-husband, or just do the best job that she can raising her son, she can always be counted upon to do or say the absolute wrong thing and get herself into one uncomfortable situation after another. What makes it all so side-splittingly funny, besides the amazing comic delivery of each and every actor, is the great writing that ensures viewers can relate on a fundamental level to Christine's every predicament. Special features include unaired scenes, a blooper reel, and a 17-minute "The Real Christine" featurette with interview footage of all the major characters as well as show creator Kari Lizer, writer Katie Palmer, director Andy Ackerman, and co-executive producer Adam Barr. --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

Now, there's a kick in the self-confidence: Single working mom Christine Campbell has just learned that her ex is dating a much-younger woman with the same first name. To avoid any confusion, everyone calls one woman New Christine and the other Old Christine. You can guess which is which. Julia Louis-Dreyfus' hilarious and insightful performance in the title role won fans and earned her the 2006 Emmy as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. Christine struggles to hold it together as she adjusts to her new nickname, confronts the meanie moms at her son's private school, jumps back in the dating pool with a post-bikini bodÄand gets laughs every misstep of the way. You go, -old" girl!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite comedies ;-> January 23, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really love this show. It's so good and I can see why Julia won a Golden Globe for this. She's such a talented and funny actress and makes this show truly enjoyable. I also really love Wanda Sykes and she brings even more humour to the show and rounds out a great cast.
While everyone probably already knows the plot of the series, here are the episodes within this DVD set.
1 PILOT - She's sweet, she's adorable, she's young, I hate her. Christine meets new Christine.
2 SUPERTRAMP - Christine looks for a fling ... and lands the man mocked as the Sad Dad at Ritchie's school.
3 OPEN WATER - Is love blind? The unexpected occurs when Barb and Pete set Christine up on a blind date.
4 ONE TOE OVER THE LINE, SWEET JESUS - Richard has no problem with Christine and Burton's romance. Nope, no problem at all.
5 I'LL SHOW YOU MINE - The men in her life. After two months of dating, Burton still hasn't met Ritchie.
6 THE OTHER F WORD - Christine takes it upon herself to diversify Ritchie's white white school.
7 LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO STAN - Solo and so low. After she breaks up with Burton, Christine discovers dining out alone is no treat.
8 TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WELL - Four hundred dollas a guest!? Christine rebels against extravagant children's birthday parties.
9 RITCHIE HAS TWO MOMMIES - ...But only one of them is nuts! Christine freaks when New Christine shows up at Parents' Night.
10 NO FAULT DIVORCE - Why did Christine and Richard get divorced? Maybe for a reason Christine never knew about.
11 EXILE ON LAME STREET - Afraid of what Ritchie will be exposed to at a Rolling Stones concert, Christine tries to crash the event.
12 SOME OF MY BEST FRIENDS ARE PORTUGUESE - Working women of the world, unite.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only sitcom I'd spend money on to buy! January 15, 2008
By KayDee
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In my opinion, this is one of the best sitcoms ever.

When I heard the first season of The New Adventures of Old Christine was going to be released on DVD, I wanted to jump and shout for joy. Finally! A show series that I find worthy enough to spend money on. It is the only sitcom that I could watch over and over - and laugh just as hard the second, third, or ninety-ninth time.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the top shows on TV! November 8, 2007
By asplatt
Format:DVD
This is one of the best shows on television. I'm so excited to finally be able to own it and watch it again and again. Julia Louis-Dreyfus is amazing as the star and so much fun to watch. And the supporting cast is wonderful, especially the meanie moms, Tricia O'Kelley and Alex Kapp Horner. It's a DVD you should buy to remind yourself what great television is and that the sitcom isn't dead, it just hasn't been done well for many years...until now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Candy for the soul January 26, 2008
Format:DVD
I was feeling a little down lately and happened upon this DVD. I have been laughing all evening and this little show has healed me.
I had no idea the series was so fantastic! Everything about it, from the excellent writing and laugh-out-loud humor( those striking writers deserve their due! A great comedy show like this would not be possible without the skills of the super talented writers! )...to the excellent actors and actresses, the sets are colorful and interesting, Julia's outfits are so cute....Julia L-D is at her finest. I am sorry to say she USED to be my least fav on Seinfeld, but man is she incredible in this. I have turned into a huge fan! She is gorgeous and hysterically funny. This is a top notch witty show with adult humor, and the scenes with Christine's 8 year old son are not the typical saccharine cloying scenes so commonly done with TV children.
This is a sitcom high up there in quality. It is on par with Days and Nights of Molly Dodd, as far as intelligence and adult humor and quality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Show, Very Funny February 8, 2008
Format:DVD
I liked this show from the get go. I think Julia Louis Dreyfus is very funny. I liked her on Seinfeld and she does not disappoint in this sit com. If you like New Adventures from TV, Seinfeld or are just a Julia Louis fan you will like this DVD collection. It has all 13 episodes from the first season and some of the extras are a Gag Reel, Unaired Scenes and Cast Interviews. Great addition to your comedy collection :)

5.0 out of 5 stars This show is GREAT...glad I gave it a chance February 19, 2008
Format:DVD
I admit...I never really watched this on t.v....but then I saw it was out, read all the reviews and decided to buy it...and I am SOOO happy I did....This show is HYSTERICAL! Some parts of it I feel it is living my life...dating being a single mother, issues with your kids....the "Mom Cliques" at school, shopping at Target....every single episode made me laugh. I also did not like her when she was on Seinfeld, but love her on this...even her clothes are cool! I highly recommend this and hope it stays funny and on the air for a very long time. I can't wait for the next season out on DVD.

One of the funniest new shows. I seriously laughed out loud in every episode. Usually comedy shows have one or two good episodes, but this show is seriously funny in every single episode. I hope people realize this and start watching it.

The main reason I'm only giving this show one star is because it has a canned laugh track. I hate any shows with that.

Episodes in Season 1 set not in order...
I know...I thought it was weird when New Christine has to meet Richie but in a previous episode they all went to see the penquin movie. I do like the show though...

I had that problem when I tried to post two different times for the DVD of Nightmare Man, and I just contacted Amazon by e-mail and they contacted me back and said they would fix the problem, and they did quickly after I let them know which of the two I wanted posted. Give that a try, maybe... Read More
